Last Spring, my wife and I moved into a 60s bungalow which hasn't had much done to it since it was built and is in dire need of serious renovation. We're doing as much of the work ourselves as we can - so that's me taken care of for the next couple of years!

When the build finishes, I hope to return to making mosaics. Between now and then, I occasionally get out to the fabulous Devon coast for some lure fishing. I'm not very good at it but, as any recreational angler will tell you, there's more to fishing than catching fish. Just as well in my case! Other than that, in line with a number of you here, I'm pretty addicted to YouTube. Categories I watch mostly are music (blues artists Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart are current favourites), loads of DIY vid's of course, Brexit related stuff and, lastly, some comedy to lighten the mood.

I really like to get away from the screens at the weekends, usually out cycling... blows the cobwebs away....


That and walking the dog.. and drinking beer...

Re the Youtube stuff, I like Joe Rogan, some interesting interviews.

Also Jordan Petersen.

Trouble with Youtube though... you can easily end up sitting there watching stuff half the day, when you actually wanted to get outdoors for a while..

Huge fan of Joe Rogan!
He has a wide array of people on it and most of the time will call people on any bs.
He's got some pretty funny ones too such as Theo Von and Joey Diaz.

One of his best podcasts was with CJ Fletcher! Made me think quite deeply about something that had been eating me.
Also has a MMA podcast too which I love, being a MMA fan myself.

I've heard of that Peterson guy but not tried it out yet but will soon.

Lol Jon - I take it that the slave driver - aka my wife - asked you to post this. Dear me, the lengths she'll go to just to keep my nose to the grindstone!

I can't face the next job today - which is to take up tongue 'n groove floorboards in the second bedroom. I want to re-use them, so some care and patience is required.

Lately read 3 good books on the JFK assassination, looking at the theory that the third shot was an accidental one form a secret service agent in the escort car. Some quite convincing stuff.


Also 3 titles on the Turtle Traders. How the group ran and developed was much more interesting than I had thought. The strategy resonates well with what I'm doing already of course.

I find it very relaxing to watch women's wrestling on U tube. Lots of hair pulling and action. Some are really good lookers too.
